I can recall feeling sorry for my cousins having the bland new Dick & Jane, while my school was still using the Alice & Jerry readers from the 1930s: books which were, perhaps, the social realist reading series - & with far superior illustrations.
The classic McGuffey readers of the 1880s & 1890s, which my grandfather taught with in three different one-room schools, were not actually written by W'm. McGuffey, but by writers hired by their publishers. The 1st through 8th Readers included literary excerpts, poetry, and historical accounts.
Although I was born in a hospital in Wheeling, W.Va., my parents took me home to West Alexander, PA, which was W'm. McGuffey's birthplace.
